Analytical and experimental investigation of aerodynamic forces and moments on low-aspect-ratio wings undergoing flapping oscillations

Donald S. Woolston, Sherman A. Clevenson, Sumner A. Leadbetter
Aug 1958

Aerodynamic forces and moments associated with flapping oscillations of finite wings at low speeds are considered. A comparison of theoretical and experimental results is made for a rectangular wing of aspect ratio 2. Calculated results are also given for three tapered wings of aspect ratio 3 with varying amounts of sweepback.
